About The Area

Fumba Beach Lodge runs parallel to Ukombe Reef (our house reef and is 8k in length) on the Indian Ocean. After travelling on a traditional Zanzibari Dhow boat for a 20-25 min ride you may enjoy either the humpback dolphins or the bottlenose dolphins! Ukombe is an amazingly healthy abundant reef with a bottom depth of 15 to 18 metres, the top of the reef is only 3 to 5 metres below the surface and offers a variety of colourful reef fish.

The sea here has very generous macro life! Many species of nudibranches, leaf fish, frog fish, several types of scorpion and lion fish, clownfish, cowfish, boxfish, seahorses, pipe fish, banner fish, Moorish idols, butterfly fish, many species of wrasse and some parrot fish, coronet and trumpet fish, many types of eels, up-side-down jelly fish and moon jellies, shrimps, crabs and lobsters…the list is endless!

The reef itself has the most beautiful leaf coral that looks like a rose garden, finger corals, elkhorn coral, table coral, many types of soft corals, mushroom coral, leather coral, sea whips and sea pens, anemones, gorgonian coral, barrel, fan, tube and finger sponges.
